The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) Study kicked off a surge of research to inform child welfare interventions. Dr. Kate McLaughlin's cutting-edge work now reveals that different qualities of ACEs (e.g. violence vs. deprivation) result in distinctly different impacts on neural development.

Presented by Frank Smoll, PhD. How can moms and dads become more successful sport parents? In answering this question, over 35 years of experience in coaching and parent education went into developing the Mastery Approach to Parenting in Spots (MAPS). The primary objective of MAPS is to assist parents in creating a mastery-oriented climate that promotes achievement in all areas of life, including sports. During this workshop, parents are taught how to create a learning environment that promotes youngsters' personal., social and athletic development.
